    Check Link Detox or Linkquidator!

    They might help you. But where have you been until those 4,000 links popped up?

    Take care of your website man, if you want them to take care of you.

    Good Luck

    Stop dwelling on it, you could try the disavow tool but it doesn't always work, if it kills your site chalk it down to a learning experience and start again.

    Disavow wont do shit, and services like link detox and linkquidator are nothing but rehashed ahrefs links. Linkquidator is just a rebranded and pretty looking link detox report lol.

    You need to remove the links and then disavow them if that doesn't work homey...
